Dump the Pump. Save Money. Ride Transit.
With the return of high gas prices, THE Bus announced today that it will
join with other public transportation systems nationwide to participate in
the eighth annual National Dump the Pump Day on Thursday, June 20, 2013. The
slogan of this year’s National Dump the Pump Day is “Dump the Pump. Save
Money. Ride Transit.”
Sponsored by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the 2013
National Dump the Pump Day is a day that encourages people to ride public
transportation and save money, instead of driving their vehicle. Started in
June 2006 when gas prices were $3 per gallon, this national day emphasizes
that public transportation is a great travel option that also helps people
Since gas prices reached $4 or more this year, saving money is on everyone’s
minds and public transportation is the quickest way to beat high gas prices.
According to the latest APTA Transit Savings Report, individuals in a
two-person household can save an average of more than $9,700 annually by
downsizing to one car.
